Well, I'm having virtually a non-crochet week. So much crapola going on at work and home that I am too exhausted to even pick up my hook and yarn. Well, it's only Wednesday, so maybe I can bust a few skeins before Saturday.

 

I really hate how my job interferes with my crochet time. :blush:blush:blush

 

AMEN! If I didn't need to work to support my yarn habit and the house to keep it in, I wouldn't be here!

 

I have had a sick DH at home and now a sick kid as well (they are home together today), so that means my crochet time has been pretty much non-existent. Did manage a little bit last night, but nothing that used anything up. I am HOPING to get some misc yarn packaged up and ready to ship out tonight in order to help the count, but will have to see what happens with that. The good news is that DH is actually making dinner :eek so I may have a little more time than normal, although I will still need to do the dishes....he always conveniently forgets about that part.

No new numbers to report but I was very good yesterday. :lol I went to HL to look at some yarn and couldn't find what I wanted but 11 skeins tried real hard to jump in my buggy but after much thought I put them back. :lol now if it had been the SS or RHSS it would have come home with me for sure.

I'm getting frustrated - I need three more skeins of yarn to finish Didi's sweater and the store hasn't re-ordered the color yet. I may have to start yet another project. I found a sweater I started over two years ago (yikes!) so I may see what condition it's in and if I can pick it up again, or frog it and use the yarn elsewhere.

Well, I did manage to get a little crochet time in during my lunch hour, but not enough to use up anything. Maybe tonight.

:rofl I about died when I read this one! I work in a call center and we answer phones all day... well, it has been rather slow lately and I have been crocheting at my desk between calls... My fellow workers are liking my work, so they are picking up hooks and learning between calls too. I now have 4 "students" and one other girl crochets and she is now doing her work at her desk too!

:h5

It has been a hoot at work now and we just tell our supervisor how crocheting relaxes us since our jobs are rather stressful. She doesn't mind so long as we 'behave' ourselves and don't neglect our work! So, I have gotten lucky and can actually not have work interfere too much! :hook

I have been really slacking this week, I got a new laptop so I've been playing with it instead of crocheting (shame, shame) I'm going to try to do some crocheting tonight, we'll see what happens.

Well, I finished up two skeins of cotton for the kitchen swap, but have to look up to see if I counted the first half of each last week or not, so it's either +2 or +4 :lol I also got rid of a bunch of yarn Sunday when I was cleaning/organizing. I don't remember off the top of my head, but it was quite a bit.... for me anyhow... Maybe I'll get some more done tonight as I'll be on the road...

I finished the last skein of black (+2), had just enough to border the afghan :clap. My parents come yesterday for my birthday. Didn't get much crocheting done. They took me to lunch and shopping. We couldn't find the books I wanted, so I told them they can always give me gift cards to Michael's or A.C. Moore :lol. I had a good time, even though it started with snow around 4 AM and rained from 8 AM on.

My score this week: +8

I found the yarn I need for Didi's sweater (-6) but I've got a teddy bear almost finished so perhaps tonight I can make a ball with the remnants of that skein.
